You all need to go play here, with the Merry Christmas Funk Machine. It's silly fun for everyone.

I also want to announce that hot chocolate is much tastier with a liberal splash of Grand Marnier in it.

Today I cleaned my house, finished (finally) my Christmas gift fic and sent it off to be beta'd, and am so glad I could finally get through it. It was tough this time, and it's the first thing I've been able to write since July. I hope it will unleash the floodgates and allow the words to start flowing again.

I went and bought alcohol for Christmas. Now I am just hoping that it lasts. I could get used to hot chocolate that way.

What is everyone doing for their break? Do you cook or do you eat out? If you cook, what do you make, and can I get some good recipes?

After two years without, I have a new cat... He's a tiny, dainty 3 month old scrap called Chickpea, and I just brought him home from the SPCA today. Say Hi to Chickpea.





I also wanted to say thank you so much to the people who left me their sympathy and condolences back in July. I am still battling to accept that Russ has gone forever, and get on with my life, but y'all did help a lot, and I think that the kitten is also going to help. Thank you so much. I was rude not to reply, but I had no words, and still don't really. Just only THANK YOU.

Finally, Here's Thomas, showing his bitchface, inherited from one Jared Padalecki:






And here's Daddy, showing us how it's done:




Flist cut

Hi:

I've just started on a flist cut aimed at making it possible to read all the entries from my friends without skipping huge chunks of entries. Please don't take it personally; I really don't mean it that way, so if:
You haven't posted for a year or more
You post elsewhere and copy it to your LJ from there (D/W or Ao3 for example)
You've jumped fandoms to one I don't follow
You're only there to read the fic - my LJ isn't flocked

Then I've defriended you, and I offer amnesty for anyone who wants to dump my sorry ass! I know we'll meet again if our fannish lives coincide, and if you feel that I shouldn't have defriended you, tell me. I'll put you back straight away, I promise.
candygramme: (Non Fannish ILU)
My goodness! So many hearts... Thank you, guys. I feel so blessed.

Also, bids are now open for fandom-helps over on Dreamwidth. There are so many things that people are offering up, and it's for Planned Parenthood, which deserves money for the work they do with womens' health issues and uncompensated care. My thread is here if anyone is tempted. I'm in a writing mood. Bring it!

I've decided that I should start actively working with DreamWidth, since Live Journal appears to be threatening to turn the whole thing into some kind of half-assed Facebook clone. So I finally got around to making my DreamWidth pretty and importing my stuff.

I am candygramme on there if you want to friend me. I'll be crossposting from now on, but I may abandon LJ if it does change too dramatically.

I've got my fingers crossed that it isn't going to happen, but all too often lately it has. See you over there.

Ladies and Gents of the Supernatural fandom, I think this is important. Please go and give your opinion to [livejournal.com profile] jennylynneh, because this could be the start of something good.

Here's how it went for me...

So in order to start off on the right foot, give me your prompts, pairing and a word for a fandom you know I can write, and I'll do a fic for you for the new year.

[livejournal.com profile] onci_dium arrives tomorrow morning, and me and [livejournal.com profile] titheniel will meet her off the plane. There will be much hilarity and you may well hear us from where you are, because those other girls are so noisy.

...Not me, of course!

And in other news, @kanester01 seems to have impregnated everyone including @UNpossiblyJA, although he was sleeping at the time. @GennyCortese is having second thoughts about the marriage now it's over and is sueing for 85% of @TXCandyMan's assets, including Sadie, Harley and @bodylardjandj. @EltaDanneel is determined that @GennyCortese doesn't get @UNpossiblyJA as well, and he is in his craft closet, cowering, but pregnant. @EltaDannel is going to wrestle with @pennyfoxley, a hater, who feels that she has thighs that are capable of decapitating. @EltaDanneel is convinced that her breasts of steel will win the day. They will wrestle in lime jello, as she feels that it brings out her coloring best. @Kanester and @morosenbaum72 are ripping out the rear of the Vancouver house to build more rooms, including many nurseries for all the pregnant people, but because @morosenbaum72 keeps on going shopping, a family of raccoons have moved into @GennyCortese's monogrammed, acorn adorned cookware, but @EltaDanneel feels that there's good eating in a raccoon, so @tomswelling has appointed her caterer. Despite this, @EltaDanneel has declined to be on Smallville, because @tomswelling wanted her to be Lex instead of Lana, and also to be a bridesmaid at his and @morosenberg72's forthcoming nuptuals, because @GennyCortese has decreed that she must wear yellow. @UNpossiblyJA is going to be in @kanester01's band to replace the now defunct @steviemeatie, having been promised that he can sing his verse of Crazy Love without needing to do all the falsetto. Meanwhile, @DeadDaddyJeff does keep offering to touch his screen sons in the bad place, and is trying to make sure nobody kicks Icarus. @jmannnz just wants people to pay him $10.

Confused? You won't be, after next week's thrilling installment...

A year ago, my long time friend [livejournal.com profile] sharonmarais died very suddenly of meningitis. Her husband, John is mounting a campaign to raise awareness of this horrid disease. To that end, he's written an open letter to the political candidates in his riding. I can't think of how to offer support other than asking any of you that can to do the same to your would-be MPs. If nothing else, it will serve as a tribute to Sharon's memory, and who knows, they might find a vaccination if there is enough funding.

John Marais's open letter )

Hi, folks:

Jared is known for pranks. If he were to pull a prank on someone, using a sachet of mayo, what would he do?

Please give me some ideas. Be disgusting! Be filthy! Be funny and help me out.

Thank you in advance for your fertile imaginations.

I did a flist cut, and took off the folks that are really only there for my fic, cos that's not going to ever be friends-locked. If I cut you in error, and you actually want to talk to me when I do a rare non-fic post, then please let me know, and I'll put you back and pretend it never happened. It's just that I couldn't find anything when I look through my flist, and I got frustrated.

Secondly, while I am actually doing a rare non-fic post, what do you think of this? I keep on looking and the whole idea completely baffles me. I'm interested in other peoples' thoughts.

...are only very slightly exaggerated. VanCon is over, and I really had thought it was going to suck for a huge number of reasons. Instead, it was awesome. I had a blast, and now I am trying my best to catch up on lost sleep. I hope it's soon, because I'll be losing still more next weekend, cos I'm heading down to Portland for the last Kane gig and another fix of Steve along with [livejournal.com profile] titheniel and [livejournal.com profile] canadiangoddess, because I can't ever have enough of that man.

He rocked my world so hard this past weekend. He did a truly awesome set on Friday at the con, and then on Sunday night he really let loose. His version of "Let it Be" was amazing, and he did "Little Red House" as an encore. Mary danced!

The con was fun. I had [livejournal.com profile] marys_scribbles staying with me, along with Shari, a friend who I haven't managed to persuade into LJ land yet. I also met [livejournal.com profile] agt_spooky, [livejournal.com profile] keyweegirlie and a whole bunch of the usual gang. After a while everyone at cons start to look familiar.

High spots of the con include Jake telling us about Jared's 'I am Farticus', Jensen telling us that Misha is a whore, and Jim Beaver hitting on [livejournal.com profile] titheniel. Too funny.

Now I want more.
candygramme: (Non Fannish WTF)
Can anyone out there on my flist answer this for me?

What the hell is the point of mpreg?

Why take the one thing above all others that men absolutely CAN'T do and hand it over?

Why take hot, dangerous guys and turn them into girls?

Am I missing something? It all seems so silly to me.

Where to begin? First I got rid of my husband - always a complex task! He's gone off to England, and although I'm going myself in a couple of weeks, we won't really overlap anywhere, so I have a completely Russ-free month, except that he is bombarding me with emails demanding all kinds of things long distance. Thank you dear, I really didn't have anything to do until you assailed me with all your demands for service.

So the weekend was going to be a magnificent weekend of work - sorting out the spare room and divesting myself of years of clutter, and in fact I did a lot. My friend Cruella came over on Saturday and helped me throw things away, and we drank wine and grooved to Steve Carlson (but only on the inside.)

Sunday, I woke up feeling like a train hit me. Muscles ached, joints ached, throat was sore and head was stuffed full of something really slimy and green. I was supposed to go out to see a movie in the afternoon, but instead I sat and wished I was dead.

[livejournal.com profile] splashpink arrived bearing real tea and did my gardening for me. She's the most awesome thing that ever awesomed, and I love her. I moved a few boxes of crap around and discovered the floor of the spare bedroom. Bonus. Also, I burned a whole bunch of DVDs to send out to people before falling back into bed and dying.

Monday found me back at work, with a sign around my neck that says, "unclean!" I absolutely can't spare any time off at the moment. I need my vacation time for the UK, so just wear your all over body condom if you come near me.

Today, it's easing off a little, and my joints still ache like crazy, but the stuffiness and coughing are going away. I may make it through to the finale after all.

And I have to edit my big bang this week, so I can sign off on it. I have another bunny ripping holes in my brain and I want to get going on that.

1: I am wearing AWESOME shoes. I think that actually they are the most awesome shoes I have ever owned. AND I'M WEARING THEM! ON MY FEET!

2: I have tickets to go see Spinal Tap Unwigged and Unplugged tonight. This means I will spend the evening with David St. Hubbins! WIN!

3: My BIG Bang, although not finished, looks like it actually will be ready for May 1. This wasn't always the case!

4: It's stopped raining.

5: My friend [livejournal.com profile] marys_scribbles is going to come with me to Asylum.

6: I am eating spinach salad.

7: It's Friday!

World, I love you!
